The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedic Practice conducts research that addresses the health and wellbeing of children, families, older people and the disadvantaged by undertaking impactful, innovative and interdisciplinary research to inform policy and practice.

Our aim is to engage with key partners and conduct research is encompassed within three overarching themes: Organisation and delivery of health care, Health inequalities and Health and wellbeing across the lifespan.

Our researchers and research students undertake their studies within a wide range of theoretical frameworks and models relating to the development of policy and practice that takes account of: lived experiences of health and social issues, health and social care use, and, service delivery by the nursing, midwifery and paramedic professions, the evaluation of complex interventions and implementation in practice.

Our research aligns with a range of theoretical frameworks and models relating to the development and evaluation of complex interventions and implementation in practice. We have expertise across a range of methodologies including mixed methods, systematic literature reviews, scoping and mapping studies, quantitative and qualitative research, and feasibility and pilot studies moving towards large scale RCTs, if and where appropriate.
